Justin Bieber Says God Has His Back

Justin Bieber might regard Robert Pattinson as the ultimate wingman, but when it comes to a co-pilot he’s sticking with the man upstairs.

The 16-year-old “Baby” singer opened up about his deep and abiding faith in God on Monday, telling the Associated Press that he allows the Almighty to guide him through the traps and pitfalls of fame:

“Hollywood is … a scary place. There’s a lot going on, there’s a lot of bad things, but there’s also a lot of good things. I’m able to live my dream, I’m able to do a lot of good things. Basically, I don’t even consider religion. Like, I’m a Christian, I believe in God, I believe that Jesus died on a cross for my sins. I believe that I have a relationship and I’m able to talk to him and really, he’s the reason I’m here, so I definitely have to remember that. As soon as I start forgetting, I’ve got to click back and be like, you know, this is why I’m here.”

Presumably, his consultation with the Lord includes urgent prayers asking that he make it to the bathroom on time.
